Each property in Pune will soon have a unique digital number based on its geospatial location, with every household getting a standardised digital address number.

“The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will start the tendering process for the project that will help enhance its property tax net. Every street, building and house will have a bar code and digital door number. The new system will help identify any property digitally,” said Suhas Mapari, Deputy Municipal Commissioner (General Administration), PMC.

With the help of Global Positioning System (GPS), PMC has begun collecting information about properties and is listing units out of the property tax net, too. Over eight lakh properties will be tagged on the GPS, allowing them to be traced on Google Maps.

The digital door number could also be used for navigation by the police, fire services, ambulance and other emergency services.
